stepping up

Well, just look at what I went and did! Yes! I walked around to the back of this building. It was worth the trip, because I found this nice scene, just waiting for me to arrive.

Two Stories


I was around behind an out-of-business place, because of course I was. Otherwise, how would I have ever spotted this magical scene of a pickup cab sitting atop its own bed?

Cart Barricade

A couple of times a month, I drive by this tableaux, and for probably a year I’ve thought, “I should photograph that.” So, spurred on by on online photography class assignment to “take yourself on a photo field trip” I finally made it over there to get this shot.

My photography practice regularly involves taking myself on field trips so I’m not sure what it was about having that as an actual assignment that made me do it. But anyway, here’s the scene of some TJ Maxx shopping carts barricaded against a door. (But now that I think about it – surely this door’s not a fire exit??)

This? Oh, just a little something that I spotted behind the baseball field the other day – it was a day when I was in the photography zone, and most things I saw looked like a photo. I love days like that.

Cloud Swirl

My rule to look around back came in handy the other night. We’d gone out to try to see the comet NEOWISE but the clouds made that plan unworkable. I turned around to see what was behind us (photographically speaking), and that’s when I spotted this fantastic cloud.
